Ethiopia: Tigray opposition parties estimate over 50,000 civilian deaths

A trio of opposition parties in Ethiopia's embattled Tigray region estimate that more than 50,000 civilians have been killed in the three-month conflict. They urge the international community to intervene before a "humanitarian disaster of biblical proportion will become a gruesome reality". Meanwhile in Cameroon, getting an ID card is a real struggle: some are forced to turn to the black market to get a form of identification. Finally, the first commercial flight has arrived in Timbuktu since 2012, nine years after jihadists captured the fabled Malian city.
